New York Jets Linebacker Reworks Contract To Create Cap Space

The New York Jets have had a very solid off-season thus far, adding names like CJ Uzomah, Tyler Conklin, Laken Tomlinson, Jordan Whitehead and DJ Reed in free agency, along with their stellar first round in the draft, and today, they made a great move to clear up $12 million in cap space for the 2022 season. After being paid a massive contract by the previous regime, CJ Mosley today has agreed to turn $14.88 million of his base salary into a signing bonus, which opens up a huge chunk of change in the Jets war chest.

Reports are that this isn't to sign a particular player, but rather to be there just in case the Jets want or need to add another player down the line, in case of injury or in case when the deadline rolls around, they may be a competitive team looking to add to their roster.

Either way, this is a great move from Mosley and the Jets, and whether or not 2022 will finally see them become competitive, this is just another clear example of how competent the new front office has become.
